Inside the M95 Continued
The sensor is in fact the Avago ADNS 9800 laser sensor that will offer you the ability to go from 50 to 8200 DPI in 50 DPI jumps. This sensor will also read the gaming surface and adjust accordingly to maximize its performance on any mouse pad material.
Controlling all of the actions of the mouse as well as supplying the onboard memory is the Flexis JM MC9S08JM32 MCU. This is an 8-bit processor with a 48MHz clock speed and is fully USB 2.0 compliant.
With everything back together and the mouse now plugged in, things around the M95 start to light up. At the top, the DPI selection buttons light up blue, and to match those, the profile lights on the left side are also blue, and it shows all the lights are lit so I am now on profile six.
Around the front of the mouse, the area around the scroll wheel also glows from a blue LED and it does reflect on the sides of the aluminum wheel, too. The button behind the wheel also illuminates with a blue LED, and none of these lights will change color, they are always blue.
In the heel of the mouse you also get the Corsair name and logo that illuminate with a white LED. It is tough to tell with all the lights on, but in normal lighting, both the blue and the white are very bright, and it does stand right out on your desktop.
I just wanted to step back a bit so that you can appreciate the arctic white M95 all lit up. All we have left to cover is the software, and I can tell you of my experience with this really slick looking M95.
